The Fjord regions of western Norway are stunning. Mountains surge vertically upwards from the glass-like stillness of the fjord waters. Consisting of stunning waterways, sheer mountain faces and amazingly white glaciers, Norwegian Fjord holidays are a magical experience, where sport is only a way to explore the most impressive natural wonders in Europe. The Norwegian Fjords have been named on the UNESCO World Heritage list, and not only for the staggering scenery; the traditional lifestyle of people living in this unforgiving terrain is still richly celebrated throughout the year with a range of festivals and events.

Things to do on holiday to the Norwegian Fjords

Sailing in the Norwegian Fjords is an unforgettable experience. Gliding silently through the still waters of the Norwegian Fjords with vast rock faces on either side, blocking out the sun is truly magical, and the silence is unforgettable. Kayaking and canoeing is also a fantastic way to explore the fjords from your moss-roofed cabin in the Norwegian Fjords, and if you are feeling adventurous, you can paddle up the fjord, pull your canoe to shore and walk from there, returning to your canoe to return home as the sun sets.

Walking, mountaineering and climbing are extremely popular on Norwegian Fjord holidays. The landscape, carved by the monumental power of moving glaciers, make sensational walking and climbing terrain, and the Norwegian Trekking Association have over 340 mountain huts scattered around the region if you cannot get back to your Norwegian Fjord accommodation before nightfall or are planning a multi-day hike. You can walk for days without ever coming across another soul, so if it is peace, tranquillity and mind-blowing scenery you are after; the Norwegian Fjords are waiting for your arrival. If you are hoping to take a walking holiday in the Norwegian Fjords, the best window is between June and September.

Glacier walking is an incredibly activity too. You really are spoilt for choice from a Norwegian Fjord property. The Jostedals Glacier is the largest in Northern Europe, and is particularly popular with ice-climbers and serious skiers. Walking and climbing on the glacier is extremely hard work, but clambering between ice crevasses is an awe-inspiring experience.

Skiing holidays in the Norwegian Fjords is not like skiing anywhere else in Europe. There are endless places perfect for skiing, with vast expanses of virgin snow, and vertical runs of almost 2km down to the waters of the Fjords. However, you will have to work for your sport, as there are no ski lifts here!
